Streusel Topping
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 cup flour
1/2 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans

Mix all of the dry ingredients except the nuts.

Add the butter into the mix using your hands to break into large chunks. Mix by hand until small balls form. Toss the nuts lightly into the mix.

2 large granny smith apples, peeled, cored and small diced (about 3 cups)
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
3/4 cup whole milk
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup canola oil

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Sift together the dry ingredients. Make a well in the center.
Blend in the eggs, milk, butter, vanilla and oil.

Fold in the apples.

Spoon the batter into a wax paper lined muffin pan, filling cups ~ 2/3 – 3/4 full. Top with streusel.

Bake until light golden brown and toothpick comes out clean. Baking time will be 25-40 minutes depending on size of muffin tin. Makes ~18.
